 Hey group - jumping in to Android to write some code (hobby mainly
but ...)
Can't tell if the TMobile mytouch is as development friendly as the
g1. Searched around but can't find any info. Android page only lists
g1. I need a phone for general use as well as coding and have to make
the move ASAP.
Thanks for any info, opinions, flames.
(sorry this is cross posted to another Android group - if that's bad I
will refrain in the future)


dev newb g1 vs mytouch

 Hi AN, both phones are developer-friendly, the differences are:
- the G1 has a physical keyboard, which easier to use or test apps
that require lots of text entry, etc.
- in case it matters, you can modify the OS on the G1 with a little
hacking (Don't tell T-Mobile I said that. Thanks.)
- the MyTouch is faster and sleeker.

1. distributing my app to friends

How do I distribute my app to some friends who have G1s (yea, I'm looking at
you, Scott!) for QA testing and feedback?  My app certainly isn't ready to
be put into any of the marketplaces.  I don't have a problem giving out the
source code, but I'd prefer to give him a nice binary file to install.
Besides, I can see problems with keystore.debug and compiling and the like.

How did the people who've already released code QA it?
